Create links with a shortcode. Comes in handy in places where HTML tags aren’t allowed and/or keep getting encoded or something.
Basically, just a utility plugin.
Accepts 3 parameters:
- target (automatically adds the leading underscore)
[tklink url="https://www.nike.com/"]Just do it[/tklink]
<a class="tklink" href="https://www.nike.com/">Just do it</a>
<a class="tklink" href="https://www.wordpress.org/">https://www.wordpress.org/</a>
[tklink url="https://www.google.com/" class="googlie" target="blank"]A googglie Google link that will open in a new tab[/tklink]
<a class="googlie" href="https://www.google.com/" target="_blank">A googglie Google link that will open in a new tab</a>
